Linking your External Bank Account with Plaid/Instant Verification

Plaid is a technology that allows for people to link their financial accounts to a mobile application. It makes it possible for your external bank and Stash to talk to one another. 

Click here to go to your account and link your external bank account. 

When you link Stash to your external bank, Plaid encrypts your bank information, including your transaction information, and shares it with Stash to provide functionality to key Stash features, like Round-Ups, fee monitoring, and personalization.

Stash never receives your external bank login information, like your PIN, username, or password. 

Opting out of Plaid
